I'll take you away, I'll keep you hidden. I'll protect you, I'll love you. Now that we're here we can do what we want. We can be who we want to be. This is our life, this is our beginning and our ending, this is our happily ever after. (The last of the 'tomorrowland' trilogy)


13. heartbeat

I let her drop her head onto my chest as we continue to slow dance to no music. My heart was pounding, and for some reason I wanted things to speed up. I'm usually not used to these slow movements, or slow anything in general. 

I needed to relax, take a step back and breathe but how I could do that with her in my arms? I've blamed her for my impatience ever since I met her. 

Patience is a virtue. Fuck that was so right. I bit down onto my bottom lip for what felt like the thousandth time. No doubt I would cause the skin to break soon. 

"Stop doing that."

I looked down at her as she brought her fingers up to my lips. She pulled my lip from out of my teeth. It was like she was reading my thoughts. 

"Your lips are already chapped. That will only make it worse." 

"Sorry," was the only other word I could think to say. 

She bit the inside of her cheek. 

"What's wrong?" I asked her. 

She shook her head. "How could I want something and never get it?"

I was confused. "What?" 

"Nothing, it's stupid," she pulls away from me. 

"Bo, it's obviously not stupid if your bringing it up. What do you want?" 

She crossed her arms, and I swear she shivered. Was she cold? 

"It's nothing," she repeats. "If it happens, it happens." 

She turned and left the room, leaving me in a complete mess of confusion. 

. . . Boston . . .

I entered the kitchen and Harry looked up from his cereal bowl and dropped his spoon, splattering milk onto Louis. 

"What the hell," Louis said as he looked up from a tabloid. His black square glasses perched onto his nose.

I smile at Harry and he gives a small smirk while waving his fingers gently. Louis follows his stare and looks towards me.

Louis drops the tabloid. "Boston?" 

"Hey guys," I gripped my hands together behind my back. "Have I missed a lot?" 

"BoBo!" I hear Lily squeal as she wraps her arms around my leg. 

"Hi Lily," I smile down at her while smoothing her hair gently with my fingers. 

"Where did you go?" She questioned looking up at me without letting go of my leg. 

"Lil," Louis warned, but I crouched down stopping his interference. 

I was about eye level to her, but she was just a bit taller. "I was lost, but someone found me and brought me home." 

"Did Liam find you?" She asked as she placed her small palm onto the side of my cheek. 

"Yeah," but I didn't say it. 

Lily looked past me and I turned around to see Liam leaning against the doorframe that led into the kitchen. 

I stood up and turned towards Liam. "We have some time to make up." 

He bit down onto his bottom lip again. His lips were already chapped, red, and swollen from his constant biting but he wouldn't quit it. 

"Okay," was the only word he spoke, but I didn't think he understood the thoughts going through my mind.
